My Yahoo account was hacked and my phone number disseminated around the world.

Personal information hacked causing me serious inconvenience and cost. Yahoo was NO help. Abandoned my account and will no longer visit the website. Yahoo appears to have abandoned reality and the site appears to be little more than a washed up tabloid. It seems their main interests are advertisements and pop up ads. Their taste in politics has become insufferable and all-in-all, it's an unpleasant site to visit. Not only was personal information made public by their lack of cyber security, all of my security information was skewed. After one phone call to their customer service, I realized all was lost and it would be easier and much safer to simply use a reputable email service in the future.

I love Yahoo news. I read it every day, sometimes two or three times a day.

I have noticed ,however, how liberal your stories have gotten. You print all negative stories about our President. So one sided, so negative. Come on, give the guy a chance.

He hasn't gone nearly so far as Obama or Bill Clinton on dumb stuff. I voted for Bill Clinton because he and I went to the same high school with him, I gave him a chance and look what he did with Monica Lewinsky, and probably others. Obama disgraced the office by bowing to other leaders, allowing gays to be married, sitting back and allowing ISSIS to thrive and Benghazi.

Trump was elected by the way every other president was elected in history. Again, give him a chance.

Yahoo! Account: Real first name displays; not Yahoo nickname

As of 11 May 2017, after logging into my Yahoo! account, my actual first name displays for posts on Yahoo! sites and not my Yahoo! nickname, which has displayed previously. What is going on? I prefer to use my Yahoo! nickname for privacy reasons. I have gone to my Yahoo! account settings and my chosen Yahoo! nickname is diplayed there. I even changed my Yahoo! login password, today (12 May 2017) in case there was some security breach. I see my Yahoo! nickname displays when I have logged into the Help Community. I did go back into my Yahoo! Account, deleted my Yahoo! nickname and then entered it again and Saved the transaction. Theb, I shut down my browser (Firefox 52.0.2), ended my Internet connection, and restarted my computer. When I logged into Yahoo! after all that, my problem seemed resolved. However, I experienced the problem again today (13 May 2017.) I went through the steps I did the other day, but the problem of my Yahoo! nickname not displaying continues. I posted all of this in the Yahoo! Community Forum for Account and Sign In > Manage Your Account Settings. So far, no one else has posted a solution. I am posting on Pissed Consumer in hopes someone with Yahoo! who knows how to fix this problem (something with a program, perhaps?) will see it and get a fix installed.

Yahoo Wrongfully Deletes Posts It Doesn't Like, Is Rigged For Payola, imo

Posted several times on its Finance board, making very valid comments about Apple and others and stating my opinion which is what it's for and the "American" and "Democratic" way of doing things. Lo and behold - and possibly because yahoo is taking money from companies to delete negative posts (needs to be investigated!) - my negative posts instantly disappear after I log out and log back in to check on them. My posts conform to the company's guidelines, so it's a political move by yahoo to protect companies with which they do business, imo. This is NOT the purpose of its conversation board, and yahoo should be embarrassed and ashamed of itself for being co-opted with the big business monies. Disgusting, and would never invest in yahoo for being so corrupt. This has happened several times, and the only reason for it is to protect those who give it money to watch over the opinions of investors and consumers. I hope yahoo is investigated by the feds and forced to delete its finance conversation board or un-rig it. Thank goodness there is Pissed Consumer and other sites so that customers can tell the truth!

yahoo must have a bunch of yahoos working for it. Not to be trusted.

Must be desperate for funds if they have to resort to accepting big company money to hide or delete customers' legitimate reviews of products or services.

BBB, FTC and others should look into this. Trying to limit freedom of speech is despicable.

Yahoo Pop advertisments

The popup ads on Yahoo now effect my ability to move the up-down slide bar on the individual emails. It has gotten to the point where I can not look at emails. And there is NO ONE to complain to. Yahoo is now just a joke. OH I forgot you need 100 words to get the complaint to be accepted. So aljernaldjfm a;jfoeand .aeorjenr.esspiec OK so more W(UFDCMsd. worued,jfreos ajoerpuckjf. lusopdouee. akfeuroes.we;our;os.iwerul.snlskeurop. Seriously this is totally nuts - who puts a 100 word requirement on something like this. Not sure why it keeps coming back to this requirement but now it is a quest.
